Almost all in-state students begin their studies at UGA paying limited tuition or fees. Please note that these amounts are subject to change and are meant to give prospective students an idea of the costs associated with a degree at the University of Georgia College of Education.
Students may qualify for a variety of assistantships, scholarships, and other financial awards to help offset the cost of tuition, housing, and other expenses.
All undergraduate students at UGA meet with an academic advisor each semester. This meeting is critical to a student's success as a chance to discuss courses and electives, certification criteria, and general graduation requirements.
The Department of English encourages the study of English and the craft of writing with its essay prizes for undergraduates and its student literary magazine.
As a dual degree student, you have the option to become a member of the Georgia Council of Teachers of English. This organization is the state affiliate of the National Council of Teachers of English. Membership offers you networking, mentoring, and job connections.
Our students may also attend the annual spring conference of the Journal of Language and Literacy Education, our graduate-student-run scholarly journal. This event brings together teachers, activists, and professors from around the world for interactive sessions designed to inspire, engage, create, and transform educational practice.
